A flagship is a term referring to vessel commanded by a flag officer (an Admiral or similar). Typically it refers to a vessel that is also in command of other vessels, though it can just refer to a lone vessel under the command of a flag officer.

In rare cases flagship can refer to a vessel that is equipped with the most advanced technology and the finest crew, a vessel that represents an organization as a whole. This use of the term was often applied to the USS Enterprise-D and continued with the USS Enterprise-E, despite the lack of a flag officer in command of either vessel.
